Competition for the Golden Boot
Currently, Jamie Vardy of Leicester City is the front-runner for the Golden Boot, but he has a small window from other hopefuls. There is only a difference of two goals between Jamie Vardy and Mohamed Salah, who is currently tied for 4th in the league in goals. A single game can decide the winner of the Golden Boot. Mohamed Salah has a great chance to surpass him. He only needs one great game to claim first place.
Then, there is Sergio Aguero with 16 goals, and he has the third-most goals in this season. Sergio Aguero has the best chances of capturing the Golden Boots. He has an unbelievable goal per minute ratio. He averages a goal in every 73 minutes. That is far better than Mohamed Salah’s average of a goal in every 135 minutes.
Finally, Danny Ings has been a surprise this year. The veteran is tied in 4th in goals with Mohamed Salah. He is the least likely player to win the award. He does not have a history of being a great scorer. Danny Ings has only scored more than ten goals in a season three times in his eleven-year career including this season. If I was a betting man, then I would not place my chips on the table for him.
Mohamed Salah has a great opportunity to earn a third Golden Boot in his career. The award would be fitting for him and Liverpool. The team has not won the Premier League in 30 years. He has many impressive teammates to provide many opportunities to grab this award for his third time. Mohamed Salah may end this season with the Golden Boot and Premier League championship.
